The No-Till Organic Vegetable Farm: How to Start and Run a Profitable Market Garden That Builds Health in Soil, Crops and Communities

by Daniel Mays, 240 pages, 8x10, softcover. As more gardeners and farmers warm up to the idea of reducing or eliminating tillage, a few farms in New England have risen to prominence as models of what can be achieved with applying no-till to a market-garden scale. Daniel Mays’ Frith Farm has inspired vegetable farmers in Maine and beyond. In his thoughtful book, Mays goes well beyond the why and how of growing without tilling, and offers up all he’s learned about starting and running a thriving farm business. From acquiring capital and searching for land, to flipping beds and handling harvests, Mays covers it all wisely, for the benefit of farmers new and old. His holistic approach emphasizes not only efficiency and financial solvency, but also quality of life and working at a human scale. His labor-planning and record-keeping strategies are worth emulating as much as his soil-stewarding practices. This book will breathe life into your growing endeavors and help make your market garden a more joyful place for all involved. -JPR NEW!
